Forums: Index > The Wizengamot > Pottermore Spoilers Header

Articles containing information from Pottermore are currently marked with a spoiler template. This is definitely a good idea because many readers may not want to be "spoiled" before getting access to the site themselves.

However, header templates aren't aesthetically pleasing, and make articles cluttered when there's more than one. So, my question is, how long should we leave the Pottermore spoilers template up on articles? I think it would be reasonable to leave it up for a two or three months after the site opens to all in October. We would use it again each time a new "batch" of information comes out when another book is added to the site.

Sounds reasonable. Wookieepedia has a one month spoiler period on all new releases (which are quite often) from the date of its American release. Plus, it has a general spoiler template on the main page, just as we do. I think we could go to one month if needed, but two or three would be fine. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 08:19, August 22, 2011 (UTC)
The shorter, the better, I think. But two months seems fair to give people a chance to try out the site. Starstuff (Owl me!) 08:25, August 22, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds like a brilliant idea. --Station7 08:23, August 22, 2011 (UTC)
